Now a Global Business Coach, Walter Bond, Introduces ‘Shark Mindset’ for Next Level Success in SWIM!
BOCA RATON, Fla. – October 11, 2019 — What can a shark, a suckerfish and a parasite teach you about business? Quite a bit according to Walter Bond. Walter is a global business coach, and one of the most successful NBA players you’ve probably never heard of. And he’s good with that.
Walter’s time in the NBA taught him the fundamentals needed to be a peak performer, and he now shares this knowledge in his new book, Swim! How a Shark, a Suckerfish, and a Parasite Teach You Leadership, Mentoring, and Next Level Success (Wiley, ISBN: 978-1-119-57356-2; $23.00; Hardcover).
“Adopting the ‘Shark Mindset’ can help anyone, at any level of their career, become a superstar in business and in life,” says Walter. “I never achieved household name fame like some NBA players. But I know what it takes to play with the best in the world.”
In the book, the rousing speaker and go-getter business coach tells a transformative parable that shows what it really takes to become a “big fish” — a shark!
Scotty finds it odd when an old High School buddy he hasn’t kept in touch with suddenly invites him on a fishing trip. Over the course of the day, Scotty shares with Paul life lessons he’s learned, including what sharks have taught him about business and life.
In reading Swim! we learn that in nature sharks work together with smaller fish to deal with the parasites that plague them. By providing protection for suckerfish, which eat the parasites, the shark can dominate the seas alongside its smaller friends.
Walter Bond proves the principle that leading like a shark means moving forward in a way that is collaborative, that cultivates relationships, and that allows others to achieve. But it doesn’t mean being a goldfish either. Sharks still kick butt.
The “Shark Mindset” is powered by “The Sacred Six” lessons, inspired by sharks. Among them:
Lesson 1: Sharks never stop moving forward – In business, constant forward movement is essential to your future.
Lesson 2: Sharks never look down; they always look up – Don’t act like a common fish, hold your head high, be confident. Sharks are fierce, they are NOT goldfish!
Swim! How a Shark, a Suckerfish, and a Parasite Teach You Leadership, Mentoring, and Next Level Success is an engaging tale that is as transformative as it is practical. And, it encourages leaders to reach their potential by taking others along for the ride as they Swim!
